The International Office

This is the right place for information and service regarding your studies or a research stay at Leibniz Universität Hannover, as well as for information about opportunities to study or conduct research abroad.

The International Office is responsible for Leibniz Universität’s exchange programmes and can give you advice on scholarships and other forms of support. We are also in charge of developing internationalisation at Leibniz Universität and expanding cooperation between post-secondary institutions. We are guided by the national code of conduct on foreign students.


  • Advice on studying and internships abroad

    The International Office offers a peer info session twice a month, as well as region-specific advising hours on three different dates each week, on the topic of studying and internships abroad. These sessions provide more information on the various opportunities in the different regions. Of course, general questions about studying abroad can also be answered here.
